Welcome to our new website!
Please have a look around and tell us what you think so we can improve it.
We take fly tipping very seriously. If you see someone dumping rubbish on public land, or if you see rubbish, please report it to us.
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. This includes items such as:
We can issue fly-tippers with a fixed penalty notice of £400.
Alternatively, we can prosecute. If convicted, the person can be issued with unlimited fines and a custodial sentence of up to 3 years.
If the rubbish is on private land, it's the responsibility of the owner or occupier to have it cleared.
If they don't do this, then we can serve them with a legal notice to ensure it happens.
